From the publisher website:

Since 1897, The Japan Times has reported daily in English on the people, places and goings-on in and beyond Japanese society. The Japan Times was launched on March 22, 1897 during the Meiji era. This was a time when Japanese society experienced political, social, and industrial revolution, from being an isolated feudal society to emerging as a great power on the world stage. Fundamental changes took place, to social structures, internal politics, economy, military, and foreign relations. The Japan Times has offered a unique point-of-view, different from other Japanese language newspapers, since its first issue. This is a rare resource of media during the Meiji and Taishō eras, available in English.
